Generally agreements do not contain such (conditional) clause as stated; if it has been incorporated, it may render it null and void.
What is covenented in the agreement is required to be analysed by a local lawyer for forming proper opinion.

Full case file and documents need to be referred, discuss with your lawyer.

1. FIRSTLY, a registered "partnership deed" can be dissolved ONLY after clearing the debts /liabilities, in its balance sheet.

2. SECONDLY, the debtor liability is towards a "Partnership Firm", which is now defunct. The individual non-existing partner cannot be sued, subject to point no. 1 (above).

Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal
